Councilors to talk airport land deal

Posted: Wednesday, August 5th, 2009 at 4:28 am

Washington City Councilors are looking for public input on a potential land deal that would accommodate moving the municipal airport’s runway. Mayor Sandra Johnson says they would make the landowner an offer for the property, but might have to seek condemnation. The city and property owner John Berdo have been engaged in an ongoing legal dispute. Tonight’s (8/5) public hearing will gauge support for using tax dollars to buy roughly 60 acres of Berdo’s farmland. The meeting starts at 7:00 in the Washington Public Library.
